SanGroup already employs over 500 people across all operations, and is hiring individuals to support operations in all facilities and departments in Port Alberni.

“Our Reman facility is at various stages of commissioning with the intent to scale up to full production before the end of 2022. It’s a modern facility with state-of-the-art technology. Each shift will employ 30 – 40 people running all the equipment,” Shekar says. “This facility takes raw material from supporting sawmills and further manufactures this fibre into finished goods ready for retail distribution. We’re creating value-added products using innovative techniques.”

Some products don’t even use saw blades to shape finished products. In doing so, SanGroup eliminates waste and creates a precise product. Some wood is steamed overnight and sliced to create veneer that is alter mounted to solid wood backing. This process creates zero sawdust, allowing more of each log to be used.
